ELY AND DISTRICT BOWLS LEAGUE
DESPITE an unexpected defeat by Chippenham, Newmarket are still the front runners, followed by Littleport. Both teams have drawn away at Ely Beet B and Isleham, who both lost. Clubs are now faced with playing twice a week during August including a rearranged fixture from last Thursday's programme that was wiped out by rain.
LEADERS Isleham went down at Fordham, enabling Soham B to make up ground. City of Ely's good run continued at Littleport and they are now third with the same points as Newmarket but having a three shot advantage.

WILLINGHAM just clung on to their lead by two shots at Fordham but hard on their heels are Burwell, whose seventh win on the trot keeps them within two points. Last year's champions, Mitchell Lodge, are next and they are well placed having games in hand. The two Littleport teams follow closely behind, with B having played one fewer game than A and having a better shot record.
Afternoon League Division 2
MILTON retained the number one spot with two more victories. The first was at home to Haddenham B and in the second they became the first visitors to win at Sutton. They edged away from Hiams, beaten by Chippenham who held Sutton to a draw to improve their prospects of promotion. Newmarket B slipped against their A team, who move above them, though neither played on the second date scheduled.
